Looking for a career in modeling?

Like Ed McMahon seeking new talent on his television show "Star Search," the Cranberry Mall will be on the lookout for fresh new faces during its second annual Model Search from noon to 5 p.m. Sunday.

Children and adults ages 4 to 60 are invited to participate in the event, which will be judged by representatives from the modeling firm of Ann Carter Studios in Crofton.

"Ann Carter and one of her assistants will be here that day to try out contestants," said Kathi McAvoy, marketing director for Cranberry Mall. "She will base her selections on hair color, skin color, height and other criteria."

Ms. McAvoy said that selected models will attend a six-week training session, which will focus on walking, posture, standing, sitting, hair styles and makeup.

"After they complete the training session, models will work for the mall and their merchants for one year. Throughout the course of the year, the models will participate in six fashion shows," Ms. McAvoy said.

Interested individuals are asked to bring two photos: a head shot and a full-body shot.

Contestants should report to Center Court at these times:

Ages 4-8 from noon to 1 p.m.

Ages 9-13 from 1 to 2 p.m.

Ages 14-18 from 2 to 3 p.m.

Ages 19-25 from 3 to 4 p.m.

Ages 25-60 from 4 to 5 p.m.

Information: 876-8870.


Boy Scout Troop 395 will have its annual all-you-can-eat spaghetti dinner from 4 p.m. to 7 p.m. Saturday at Sandymount United Methodist Church on Old Westminster Pike in Finksburg.

Price for adults is $5; children ages 5 to 11 are $3.50; 4 and under are free.

* Beginning Saturday from 8 a.m. to noon, Carroll County General Hospital will be offering reduced-price cholesterol screenings.

The screening will take place in the hospital's outpatient lab at the Billingslea Medical Building on Washington Road.

The cost is $7.

Those tested will receive a letter with their screening results as they relate to the American Heart Association guidelines.

The reduced-price screening will aid people who may be concerned that their cholesterol levels are too high.

If results exceed the American Heart Association guidelines, those tested can seek further attention from their family physician.

For those who cannot come Saturday, the hospital will conduct screenings three evenings next week: Monday from 5 p.m. to 9 p.m., Tuesday from 5 p.m. to 9 p.m., and Friday from 5 p.m. to 9 p.m.

Information: 857-6935.

* When was the last time you took a walk by the light of the moon? Bear Branch Nature Center, off Route 97, would like to provide you with the opportunity to enjoy nature by moonlight Friday when it sponsors the Full Moon Night Hike.

From 7 p.m. to 8:30 p.m., park naturalist Heather Davis will introduce night creatures and talk about some of the differences between night and day in the woodlands.

"What we will do is enjoy the night shift," said Ms. Davis. "We will take a leisurely hourlong hike and try to call in some owl and fox, while listening to the sounds of the woods at night."

Those interested in taking the night hike should meet at the Hashawa complex.

Cost for members of Piney Run Park and Bear Branch is $1 a person. Nonmember cost is $2 a person.

To register, call Piney Run Park at 795-6043. Other information: 848-2517.


Music will abound Sunday when members of the Carroll County Community College music department share their talents at 3 p.m. in the college's Great Hall.

The recital, "Faculty Favorites," will be the first offering in a spring recital series that will feature performers Evan Walker, Rebecca Long, Garth Baxter and Robin Bourguignon.

Compositions by Mozart, Villa Lobos and Garth Baxter will highlight the free program.

Information: 876-9621.
